The incident surfaced the internet after the News agency ANI reported that the MLA was allegedly being stopped by the police from entering party president Rahul Gandhi's review meeting in Shimla.
The MLA later apologised, saying "the lady constable misbehaved, abused me and nearly beat me, but I should not have lost my calm".
However, Kumari reportedly ordered the lady cop to allow her to go through and attend the meet, telling her that she was an elected legislator and had been invited for the meeting.
